Should Notre Dame Be Number One?
The latest BCS standings are out, and the undefeated Notre Dame Fighting Irish are in the number one spot for the first time in the program’s history. It only took a few seasons for Brian Kelly to restore Notre Dameto greatness, with the Irish performing at a level not seen in years. Currently at 11-0, Notre Dame is the only remaining unbeaten, bowl-eligible team. They have a big game against struggling USC on Saturday, and if they win that, they will likely be in the BCS title game.
Notre Dame has had some pretty decent opponents, too, so they’re not just a weak-schedule mirage. The biggest scare they had came against un-ranked Pittsburgh, who took them to overtime.
